Is there anything Selena Gomez can't do? She sings, she acts, she frolics around on tropical beaches with boyfriend, Justin Bieber. And in her smokin' black lace gown at the 2011 MTV VMAs, she's proving herself as a style force to boot. We loved how she kept the rest of her look simple and sophisticated with upswept hair and gold Judith Lieber miniaudiere. Here are some of our favorite pieces, perfect for adding this sassy style to your wardrobe.

This Blu Moon black lace back button down shirt from Shopbop, $116, is the casual cousin to Selena's jaw-dropping dress. This little top is just the thing to glam up a pair of grungy old cut-off shorts. We suggest showing off the sultry black lace back by wearing your hair up in a messy top knot and finishing off the look with a touch of hot pink lipstick.

Want to wear your lace a little lower? The elastic waist on this Free People black lace maxi skirt, $148, makes it both casual and comfortable. We love it with a basic white tee or a chambray shirt. Pair it with oxfords to temper the super-feminine texture.

One glance at Selena's gorgeous gams and you know the secret to pulling off sexy black lace is a sun-kissed glow. We suggest Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl Bronzing Butter from Sephora, $7, for a smooth, bronzed look all over. Bonus points if it smells like a summery vacation in a tube and is mega-moisturizing like this stuff!

An outfit isn't complete without the perfect bag or clutch. This embellished canvas clutch from Forever 21, $25, adds statement-style to any outfit, especially black lace. Not only is this clutch a unique style, but it adds a pop of shiny, metallic color to any look.

To top off a look, add a swipe of Maybelline's Shine Sensational lipgloss in Glamorous Guava, $6, for a pretty and soft pout like Selena's. Shiny lips are a style must for any look. Not only does this lipgloss look delicious on lips, but it smells like fresh fruit, too!
